Let Executives SEA (Self Evaluate and Assess)

Title :   PDSEA: Personal and Professional Development through

Self-Evaluation and Assessment Activity

For: Executives and Management

Background:

  • Our experience reflects, our general observation tells and research proves that one of the most effective methods for inducing a positive desired response or change in human beings is through gaining self knowledge.
  • As the German poet and philosopher Rainer Maria Rilke very rightly said: “There is only one journey. Going inside yourself.
  • Contemplation and self analysis has had enjoyed a very high ranking and status among all religions and divine schools of knowledge.
  • Self analysis is perhaps considered one of the most effective tools of personal and professional development.
  • We see many of the training efforts going futile owing to a multiplicity of reasons. Since training people involves exposing them to an idea or a new set of information or a skill or a changed attribute, a training event goes futile if it is not effective.

In the light of above and our work exposure and experience to projects on self assessments, we have developed a program focused on executives titled:

Personal and Professional Development through Self-Assessment and Evaluation (PDSEA)

Most of the training activities for teachers focus on a funnel learning methodology. Trainees are poured in knowledge through listening and visual aids and then are expected to improve at their own.

Learning through Self Awareness:

  1. Wisdom of the ages and modern psychology are in agreement that self awareness is the greatest source and tool of learning.
  2. Questions that we ask to our selves cannot be ignored easily.
  3. We tend to improve more when learning is self initiated and we are trusted for the act of improving ourselves.
  4. Self awareness creates acceptance for the need of improvement, which is mostly ignored else wise.

About C and E Square:

C-Square and E-square are a change management model used to bring about any desired change.   E.g. for education sector we have developed 14 parameters and 52 perspectives for self-evaluation which cover the above mentioned learning and improvement goals. For management and business sectors we have variant parameters and perspectives etc.
